Bisson: Send us your scenic photos for publication

Recent rains have blessed the Arizona desert landscape with lush vegetation.

Now’s the time to enjoy hiking in the Valley before our temperatures rise too high.

This spring promises blooming cacti and a plethora of wild flowers.

My daughter and I enjoyed our first explorations of the Superstition Mountains, taking Peralta Canyon Trail to Weaver’s Needle.

The constant variation of the landscape amazed me most while hiking the trailhead.

We saw swelled saguaros, small wildlife and the most interesting rock textures.

Please be sure to bring plenty of water as it’s important to stay adequately hydrated when hiking the Arizona desert.

I’ve shared photos of my outing. I hope you’ll share your scenic photos with us. Email

The Superstitions are most known for the tale of Lost Dutchman’s gold mine.

Lost Dutchman Days formed due to the urban legend.
